How will these organizations use the grant funds?
Beloit Meals On Wheels
Cover the cost of a reputable and comprehensive timing service for their Musing for Meals event. Which could not take place in 2020 due to COVID-19 and is one of the most important fundraising vehicles for Beloit Meals on Wheels.
Support our Youth Outreach and Supportive Services, benefitting 250-300 local unaccompanied homeless youth, ages 14-21 and primarily high school students. Approximately 70%+ of these youth are in the greater Beloit area.
Beloit Life Center
Help children and families in Beloit. We partner with the School District of Beloit and their social workers receive requests for assistance to motel rooms to keep families off the street (and out of their cars) and also for basic school supplies to help children in need. We also provide bus tokens for teens to get to and from school (pre-COVID-19) and will continue this when school resumes face to face. All funds will be used to help children who attend school in Beloit and their families.
Stateline Boys & Girls Club
Beloit youth are struggling with Virtual Learning and our clubs have stepped up to provide Virtual Learning Support and essential childcare. These grant funds will allow us to continue to offer Virtual Learning Support in a safe, fun, supportive environment. Our staff work tirelessly with local school districts to ensure that the young people in our care are supported in their Virtual Learning journey. We will also use the funds to continue to strengthen our technology efforts for those Virtual Learners.
